Luke Sellick Quartet

Luke Sellick Quartet Luke Sellick is a Winnipeg-born double bassist and composer. Now 19, Luke has been performing professionally for five years. He has collaborated with some of Winnipeg’s best jazz artists, including Ron Paley, Will Bonness and Larry Roy. Currently studying at the University of Manitoba, Luke is in his second year of the bachelor of jazz studies program, working closely with instructors Steve Kirby, Jimmy Greene, George Colligan, and Meredith Johnson. In 2009 Luke was awarded the Oscar Peterson Award for Jazz Performance, a national audition-based scholarship awarded by the Hnatyshyn Foundation. As an improvising musician, writing music is a very natural part of Luke Sellick's musical experience. Like most musicians, he has enjoyed constructing his own pieces, but in the last two years he has become increasingly reliant on composition as a means of exploring uncharted musical waters. For his first Nu Sounds appearance, Sellick is eager to dedicate the entire concert to his own compositions and adventurous arrangements of standards.
